This recipe, which is a lot like Revel Bars or the old Fudge Jumble Bars that Pillsbury used to sell.  It has a […]

Happy belated Fourth of July! I hope everyone had a good holiday. We met our new neighbors, bought a washer and dryer (ended up with the new Samsung) and put chicken wire around the bottom of the fence so Lizzie can’t dig under. Moving day is around the corner, but right now the house is […]

Oat ‘n’ Toffee Grahams Recipe

by on January 3, 2010 · 9 comments


This recipe is adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorites 2010 Cookbook, a supplement to the magazine.

Oatmeal Bars

When I was six I had a red-headed teenage babysitter named Colleen. She was very strict….mean, even. But Colleen liked to bake and for that, I think fondly of her. Whether Colleen would bake me a treat was dependent upon my behavior. I don’t quite remember what was expected behavior-wise since I was an obedient, […]

Did you know today was National Butterscotch Day? It’s not, I just made that up. But if it were, this would be a good cookie to make. These bars, in my opinion, are probably the best cookies I’ve made all week. Okay, so it’s only Tuesday and I didn’t bake cookies …
